Lost Google Authenticator access, now can't login to Netlify. Any help please?

I have 2 Free tire Netlify accounts. I enabled 2 factor authentication on each of them and managed the auth code generation with Google Authenticator.

My phones Android OS crashed few days ago, had to factory reset the whole thing and forgot to manage Google Authenticator backup codes or transfer to another device before everything gets wiped. No have no backup codes. No access to recent Google Authenticator setup. Therefor I can no longer generate auth code to login to my Netlify accounts. So basically I locked out myself. :man_facepalming:

I tried to contact Netlify support, soon realised that I can not do that on Free tire. On the Support page I was diverted here, so I trie to yell HELP here in the community.
I have no idea how to gain back access to my Netlify accounts.

Can I get help with this issue somehow or I’m locked out now for eternity? :disappointed:
Any help or pointing the right direction would be very much appreciated! :pray:
